The 3th sunday after Whit Sunday is a highday for the christian community in my tiny little home village, Bellingen ( ±18 km south-west of Brussels and ±400 inhabitants ).
On this sunday the procession of the local saint, St Drogo, takes place. The life of the saint is represented and his statue and relics are toured trough the village center and the surrounding fields.
As it was the 125th anniversary of this event, delegations of the surrounding villages, Saintes and Lembeek, were invited. So expectations were high.
But ... it rained in sheets !
Nevertheless colourfull characters, good humour and relaxed athmosphere remained unchanged as always before.
In this series of pictures i tried to display this athmosphere and i hope you will enjoy it too.
